After being amazed at the match against Chelsea last weekend, Liverpool legend John Barnes is now curious about Thiago Alcantara’s performance in the match against Manchester City.
As is known, Thiago Alcantara was recruited from Bayern Munich last summer. Only two days after joining Anfield, he immediately had the opportunity to debut with the Marseyside Team.
Precisely in the match against Chelsea, where the former Barcelona was played in the second half. Although only 45 minutes, Thiago managed to help Liverpool win 2-0 over Chelsea.
Many were then impressed by Thiago alcantara’s performance in the match, including Liverpool legend John Barnes.
It’s just that on the one hand, Barnes felt Liverpool benefited more in the match following the fact that Chelsea only played with 10 people in the second half.
“Thiago was outstanding on his debut at the weekend. For him, he came on to the pitch in the first half in the best of circumstances. Playing against a team of 10, where he will get a lot of balls really dominates the situation and play in the middle of the field,”
“He broke the Premier League record for the highest number of passes completed by a player in 45 minutes which shows a lot about his quality and what he can bring to this team moving forward,” Barnes told BonusCodeBets.
For this reason, John Barnes was then curious about Thiago Alcantara’s performance in the match against Manchester City later.
“It will be interesting to see how he plays teams like Manchester City when he doesn’t have too much possession. But these are all good problems that Jurgen Klopp has. ”
“But to keep the ball, there is no better player in the world of football to do it than Thiago,” said Barnes.
For information, Thiago Alcantara collected no less than 75 passes during 45 minutes of the second half match against Chelsea yesterday. That’s 17 more than any Blues player in full play.
